I so enjoyed the nice walk to watch the 1/2 and full marathoners turn into the final stretch. I waved. I yelled. I clapped. I saw a few friends along the way. But, I was on the sidelines. I've not been able to run in many years thanks t... Read more
Roller Coaster Yikes!
Thursday, April 14, 2011      2 comments

I'm so up and down in my healthy/not so healthy routines that I feel like I'm on a roller coaster. I go from a great exercise day to a couch potato day. I go from a healthy eating day to a terrible binge day. I mix and match these ups and dow... Read more

After much snow, rain, and lots of cloudy weather, the sun is out and the forecast is for a pretty pleasant week. So, knowing I'm not likely to get caught in a storm, I so look forward to getting outdoors every day this week. Just getting me a... Read more

Every week or two I seem to have a sleepless night. This night has been one of those. After laying there for a few hours I decided it was time to just get up and do something useful. I blame this night on fibromyalgia and ms exacerbations pos... Read more

The sun will be shining in just a few hours here. Though I really should try to get a little more shut eye before starting my day in earnest, I feel a certain enthusiasm that is making me especially eager for the day. The sun has been shining ... Read more

So, I was cruising along following a healthy meal plan when a disgusting little marshmallowy treat called my name. I bought the box for the grandkids, oops. What makes me think that if something is bad for me it will be any better for those li... Read more

Work out, that is. Every time I think I will do more, I end up doing less or none at all. So, my goal of two a day work outs is on hold for now. Instead, I will get in some exercise at least one time a day and if I can do more, hooray! I thi... Read more

Well, my dh and I shopped for some hiking boots for me after I read a great recent blog about the 10 things to take on a spring hike. We found a great pair on sail at R.E.I. on Saturday and thought we'd try them out later that day. But, as oft... Read more

"Fatso", "Chubby", "Fatty", "Waddles" -- Those were the most common names that the mean kids called me when I was a little girl. Even my parents called me chubby as they continually loaded my plate with very unhealthy fare and told me to clean... Read more
